Word comes from Chicago that Mr. Lorenzo Willix, second engineer on the steamer GOVERNOR SMITH, of the O.T. Co.'s line, while on their first trip to Chicago, had accidentally caught his left arm in the pony engine, the bones being crushed from the elbow to the wrist. He was taken to a Chicago hospital, where amputation was found necessary, gangrene having set in. Mr. Willix has resided in this city the past year and has many friends who hope for a speedy recovery, over which there seems to be some doubt.
